Dartmouth’s John George Charged With Embezzlement

TSM

Dartmouth Select Board member and former State Rep. John George has been indicted and charged with embezzlement from an organization that received federal funds.

The charges were announced Wednesday by the U-S Attorney’s office in Boston.

The indictment alleges that during the time George owned the Union Street Bus Company, he conspired with other individuals to have various Union Street employees work at the John George Farm in Dartmouth, during their scheduled work hours for the bus company.

The 68-year old George also accused of using bus company employees to repair farm equipment and inflating his salary to fraudulently boost his SRTA pension.

The statute provides for a sentence of up to ten years in prison, and a fine of $250,000.

George has denied the charges.  He told the Standard Times, the allegations are not true, and he has no plans to resign.
